Even though my combine isn't starting until tomorrow. I can already feel fear creeping in. "What if you don't do as well as you have been during practice?... Will people think you've just been making up stuff?"

Although I enjoy reading other Combiners' journals, don't feel the need to post everyday and in detail. It adds additional psychological pressure to trade publicly and it probably negatively effects performance. So an update in every other day is just fine. Or if it bothers you just stop posting altogether and let us know the end result...

I know it's silly, and I'll push through it, but just being honest with some things that are popping in the head.

The best thing is that I am in touch and AWARE of the feelings/emotions. I'll do my best to make sound trading decisions despite them. Acknowledging them is half the battle. #mymonkey

We all like you and respect you whether you succeed in this particular thing or not. You are a good trader and have good instincts. We all need work on our trading, so in that respect you are no different from the rest of us.. you work hard on your trading and are doing well. Just have some fun with this Merritt--grab your balls, hang on to them, and take your trades! Never let fear take the joy, fun, and success out of this!!

Journaling is something I do

Should it be done publicly or not?

That depends.

There are some things that are meant for sharing and others benefit some, you benefit more.

Some things, there is no real value posting publicly - so those are best jotted down the old fashioned way.

Also, in trading you are your own worst enemy so posting publicly / peer pressure etc. are small fry.

Journaling changed my trading life, and a combine is no different, IMHO.

I am glad, but the advice wasn't for you. It actually took 5 minutes before I realized that it wasn't indextrader responding...

From my experience fear before a big challenge is good very good ... some of my best results of my trading career have been under fear, again this is just my own experience. You are good at what you do combine result not going to change that, keep working on yourself you will find your way around.. Best of luck

One trade so far today. In line with fading the edges as mentioned in pre-market post earlier. Poked right above last session's high's, triggered stops, fade the move.

I scaled out 4/6 before news, and left the remainder on for the news with stop at BE since I had a couple point cushion.

Executed on the T4 DOM getting ready for tomorrow.



I really wanted to short the retest of the OS low, but didn't pull the trigger on it. I was eating a good breakfast at the time so attention slightly diverted.

3 more advices and I will shut up:

1. Use this last few hours and put a bunch of trades through the T4 (profit is irrelevant, familiarity is not), so you are VERY familiar with it by the time you are doing it live. People do screw up with it and only inexperience can be blamed....

2. You can actually start trading the Combine today after 6 pm EST, if you wish to do so...

3. The 2 most important buttons are the Flatten all positions and the Cancel all orders, make sure you know where they are and which is which...

Otherwise good luck!

Yeah and flatten out does not cancel standing OCO orders! Make sure you pull them out or they will trigger you into position! Order entry bar does not trigger OCO orders to be sent, no idea why. They say it's most used on the floor platform, maybe because it is just as ancient old as the floor itself. Must run on XT then!
